This is the third set of data held in the PCAD database, after buildings and people. It would be very useful for expanding our (rather poor) coverage of architectural firms and related companies in the U.S.

Note - The domain "architectural firm" would be too strict, since it does not cover the many building contractors, property developers, interior design studios, and furniture makers in the database.

Note 2 - This dataset is in Mix'n'Match , but the service is not up right now so I can't verify the catalogue number. - PKM (talk) 21:51, 18 February 2019 (UTC)
